Run devil run, the angels having fun 
Making winners out of sinners better leave before it's done

When he gets through, he'll be coming after you, 
Listen what I'm saying to you Run . . . Run Devil Run 

By a swamp in Alabama in the cold in the damp
Sittin reading by the light of a kerosene lamp
Lives a holly roller with a mission on her mind
Got to spread the word to anybody she can find
You can hear her screaming any time in night or day
This is what she says to keep the demons away 

Run devil run, the angels having fun 
Making winners out of sinners better leave before it's done
When he gets through, he'll be coming after you, 
Listen what I'm saying to you Run . . . Run Devil Run 

Her brother and her sister said that she brought them down 
Steppin on the bus that was heading to town 
There they started drinking, they got into a fight 
The sheriff introduced them to the jailhouse for a night 
When the holy roller came to town to pay the bail 
This is what she sang as she was leaving the jail 

Run devil run, the angels having fun 
Making winners out of sinners better leave before it's done
When he gets through, he'll be coming after you, 
Listen what I'm saying to you Run . . . Run Devil Run 

Lead solo (8 bars)

Piano (8 bars)

Well by the middle of the summer they were back in the shack 
Picking cotton for a livin keep 'em on the right track 
Visiting the nieghbours trying to spread the good news 
Singing gospel music with a hint of the blues 
All of them determined to deliver the goods 
Now you you hear the music comin out on the woods 

Run devil run, the angel having fun 
Making winners out of sinners better leave before it's done
When he gets through, he'll be coming after you, 
Listen what I'm saying to you Run . . . Run Devil Run 

Ah you'ld better Run . . . Run Devil Run 
You better Run . . . Run Devil Run
